Ephesians 6:1-4 | EV Church | 26/05/2013 | Andrew Heard
Andrew unpacks what the bible says about family, living for the honour of God. Deut 6:1-6. Eph 6:1-4 Eph 6 describes an asymmetry in relationship, children to obey parents. Assumption being that the child is 'in the Lord'. Fathers - don't exasperate your children, why fathers ? because he is most likely to create the problem (physically stronger and lower emotional intelligence). Punish for wilful disobedience rather than childishness. We can punish based on inconvenience to us, rather than inappropriate behaviour. Eph 6:4 goes on to say 'instead ... Bring them up in the training and discipline of The Lord. This suggests that The Lord is more important than even family.

If you're a follower of Jesus, God has adopted you into a massive and eternal family!

Family is a great blessing from God, but a really bad master as god.
Mark 12:28-34 | EV Church | 9/06/2013 | Craig Dobbie
Craig unpacks Mark 12:28-34 for the final of our 3 week series on Family for the Glory of God Jesus sums up the 10 commandments - they are all about love - Jesus distinguishes 'Love of God first, then Love of your neighbour' second Family is a good thing, but teaching kids that they are the ultimate thing in life has negative outcomes - they become spoilt. If they succeed they get arrogant, and if they fail it comes with tremendous guilt. Practice living by grace. God forgives fully and completely because of the cross. Failure is normal & frequent and you don't have to run away from it. Grace itself is the motive for loving God. But Model alone is ambiguous. At every point when you deal with relationships you are training your heart. When you put something before God, you actually break the love of God. Jesus calls us to God first because it actually helps us love our neighbour.
